Why does the Bush Administration move up to 200,000 troops, five carriers and tons of equipment to the Middle East to capture or kill Saddam Hussein but no such effort has yet been made to capture or kill Osama bin Laden?

Why – after the fall of Afghanistan in late 2001 – has the Bush Administration dropped the capture or killing of Osama as its top priority?

Why has G.W. Bush dropped his “Wanted: Dead or Alive” statement?

Why has G.W. Bush not even mentioned Osama bin Laden since last July?

Why is the Bush Administration so obsessed with Saddam’s ‘regime change’ that they will now even resort to using Osama’s latest tape as proof of a ‘link’ between the two Mid-East madmen?

Why did the Bush Administration suddenly alter their policy of not playing Osama’s tapes in public for fear they contain coded instructions to sleeper cells?

Why does the Bush Administration refuse to declare war on our real enemy: fundamentalist Islam?

Why does the Bush Administration insist on linking Saddam to Osama – when Osama was clear in his disdain for Saddam’s ‘infidel’ regime?

Why are we obsessed with this looming war against Iraq – when the Orange Alert comes because of Al Qaeda threats?

Why did this administration go to such great lengths not to implicate Iraq in the 9/11 attacks – despite compelling evidence from the Czech intelligence service (BIS) – showing lead hijacker Mohammed Atta meeting in Prague with a top Iraqi intelligence agent?

Why is George Tenet – a former Democratic senatorial hack – still running the CIA after the massive intelligence failure known as 9/11? And why is he the only Clinton holdover still in the Bush senior hierarchy? Why are the two George Bushes – father and son – so in love with Clinton’s intelligence chief?

Why has some aspect of the US government protected Saddam as far back as the ending of the Gulf War in 1991? Why has this government element used leaks to try to prevent this administration from carrying out its stated goal of ‘regime change’?

Why has the US Government failed so miserably to solve the 2001 anthrax attacks? Why can Colin Powell brandish a small vial of simulated anthrax to scare the hell out of us but we still have no clue about who mailed out envelopes filled with spores to the media and US Senate?

Why should we believe one word our government tells us?
